I have always wanted to learn HTML and CSS, but never really had the time. At least, I thought I didn’t have the time. I guess I really overestimated the difficulty and complexity of doing so. A few days ago I started learning to build web pages using some online tutorials (and a bit of assistance from my web designer friends) and today I am happy to present to you my first website!
As an artist, it has always been stressed to me that I need a portfolio website. So, of course, as soon as I had enough knowledge to begin working I popped open Photoshop and began planning what I wanted to do. After multiple different designs revolving around things like bright gradients and pseudo-realistic ribbon elements, I eventually settled on a minimalist layout on a subtle “pinstriped suit” background. I’m pretty happy with the results so far.
As this is my first website, I know there are bound to be issues. So if you find anything wrong, I urge you to let me know. Send me an email, leave a comment, or (if it works) use the contact form on the site.
